PUBLIC PROCUREMENT IN THE FIELD OF DEFENSE AND EU LAW

At the end of the 20th century, the European Union (EU) began the creation of the Common Defense and Security Policy (CSDP), in order to strengthen its position at the global level. One of the aspects of ZOBP is overcoming obstacles in the common market of military or defense equipment. This market is regulated by a series of procedures that include public procurement procedures in the field of defense. As a rule, public procurement in the field of defense is carried out in accordance with the generally prescribed regulations on public procurement that apply to the procurement of services, goods and works of various types. Certain limitations and specifics of public procurement in the field of defense arise from the very specifics of the activities of the military and defense industry, so that certain deviations are possible for services, goods and works from this area, which presuppose strict rules and explanations. This, first of all, refers to certificates and certificates that guarantee the protection of data confidentiality, compliance with standards or national rules under which the export of certain goods is possible. The aim of the work is to bring closer the subject and procedure of these procurements and solutions that are given in European and domestic legislation. In doing so, the method of content analysis and the comparative method were used in order to clarify the basic concepts and the course of the procedure and to compare the European and domestic legislation. Based on the implementation analysis, it was shown that the Republic of Serbia fulfilled the obligation to harmonize its legislation in the field of public procurement with EU law (negotiation Chapter 5). In this way, it is possible for domestic legal entities to participate in public procurement procedures conducted on the territory of the EU, as well as for legal entities based in the EU to participate in public procurement procedures in the Republic of Serbia.
